The vibrant life of downtown Kenosha is anchored by the premier waterfront park known as Simmons Island. This site captures a blend of historic nostalgia, recreational amenities, and natural beauty. The Master Plan completed by SAA in 2011 focused on connectivity, environmental restoration, and enhanced multi-use spaces. A phased redevelopment approach will rejuvenate the Island, spur economic development, and improve safety for multi-modal transportation users using a mixture of public and private investment dollars. Public involvement was a key factor in the success of this plan and will continue through implementation phases.
